March 2019 – “This is the story of the Guareschi family, a race with the Guzzi DNA for the last two generations and a point of reference for admirers of the Mandello Eagle across Europe, to whom they provide much more than a dealer would normally offer: meticulous mechanics, unfindable parts, a genuine love of vintage models. And a boundless passion for racing. A life devoted to a brand and its history. A brand Vittoriano and Gianfranco, the sons of Claudio, the company founder, are now bringing back to the racetrack”.
GC CORSE: MOTO GUZZI FAST ENDURANCE KIT. The Moto Guzzi V7 III is the protagonist of the new Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance Trophy, organised with the FMI and intended for people who regard racing as an occasion for camaraderie, passion and fun. Five 60-minute “Fast Endurance” races, on the V7 III, with two-rider teams and a Le Mans-style start. 2019 RACES IN ITALIAN CIRCUITS: 14 April, Varano (Parma); 19 May, Vallelunga (Rome); 23 June, Magione (Perugia); 1ST September, Adria (Rovigo); 13 October, Misano (Rimini).
An icon of Italian style, the Mandello "settemmezzo" is the perfect base for the realisation, with a special kit, of a racing bike everyone can ride.
The outfitting of Moto Guzzi V7 III bikes with the obligatory kit required to compete in races – developed by Guareschi Moto, a highly-regarded Moto Guzzi preparer in the sporting community too – can be handled directly by the team registered to compete in the Trophy or managed by the Moto Guzzi sales network.
The kit includes dampers, exhaust system, half-handlebars, windshield, one-seat saddle and other details to enable the Moto Guzzi V7 III to compete on the racetrack but still remain an easy, intuitive motorbike, ideal for more or less expert “gentlemen riders”, but also for young bikers trying out their racing skills for the first time.

GC CORSE: VARANO KIT. “This is a revolutionary kit,” the Guareschis explain. “The idea came from requests from numerous Guzzi bikers who wanted to transform their road bikes into racers. By improving drivability, agility when going into bends and changing directions, the kit enables everyone to race in the various championships.
The kit can be mounted on a 2- or 4-valve Guzzi Big Block base with a CARC shaft drive. It comprises a frame, saddle mount, dashboard mount, fuel tank, blow-by tank, footpegs, half-handlebars, fairing, tail and tank cover. The frame is a round-tube assembly weighing 7 kg. Other technical data: wheelbase 1470; rake 26°. The bike’s performance is accompanied by an extremely appealing aesthetic.”
HISTORY. “Fifty years ago, on the outskirts of Parma, Claudio Guareschi achieved his dream… His irresistible passion would tie the destiny of the Guareschi family to the destiny of the dealership, which has always been loyal to Moto Guzzi, a brand capable of creating motorcycles that leave their mark on the heart of everyone who rides them.
The inventive genius of the founder, subsequently combined with the expertise of his sons, Vittoriano and Gianfranco, has made Guareschi Moto a name that is recognised and appreciated across Italy and Europe.
In addition to selling Moto Guzzi bikes and running a garage, the historic Parma dealer has extensive experience in restoration work and an innate aptitude for the world of racing. Guareschi Moto has therefore become part of the Moto Guzzi story, after clocking up successes in the national championships and in important international races, inspired by the intention of reviving the former glories of the historic Moto Guzzi name.
